Help Welcome Refugees

When you donate new or gently used items to JFS, you are helping refugees to feel welcome and at home! The impact of these donations is immeasurable. Your donations are not only helping to furnish apartments for newly arriving families, you are helping these families know there is a support system here for them, with a community that came together to create homes for them prior to their arrival.
